HORSEBACK RIDING ACADEMY LESSONS - 2024


SFR Equestrian offers a safe riding experience for all levels of riders in our academy. Our skilled instructors provide positive and knowledgeable guidance. Beginners start by learning fundamental skills such as proper brushing and tacking-up techniques, followed by individualized riding sessions. We prioritize teaching all students correct horsemanship skills, both on the ground and while riding. Whether you seek recreational riding or aim for success in competitive arenas, our team is dedicated to helping you achieve your goals within a welcoming and secure learning atmosphere.

 

2024 RIDING ACADEMY PROGRAM OVERVIEW

  • Programming is conducted throughout the year.

  • The program is open to riders aged 7 and above.

  • HST is included in all prices.

  • SFR Equestrian accepts payments by cheque, online transaction or credit card.

  • A thirty-day written notice is necessary to discontinue lessons.

  • Payment is due on receipt of invoicing to secure a spot in our calendar.

  • Lesson and day camp fees are non-refundable. If SFR Equestrian cancels a lesson, a makeup lesson will be offered, or one lesson will be credited to your account for the next bill.

  • Missed lessons - If you provide us with 24 hours' notice for missing a weekly lesson, a makeup lesson will be arranged during the next month with an available instructor and horse.

  • Lesson times are 1 hour for Group and 45 minutes for private or Semiprivate. Group lessons include up to 5 riders. If enrolled for Group lessons but only 1 or 2 people are present, the lesson time will be 45 minutes. If placed in a lesson spot alone or with one other person while registered for Group lessons, you will still be billed Group lesson rates. For Horsemanship and Beginner lessons, the time includes both mounted and unmounted instruction.

  • Although billed monthly, lesson rates are per lesson. In months with 5 lesson days (e.g., if riding on Mondays, 5 Mondays), your invoice will reflect 5 lessons.

  • Theory lessons may substitute for riding in the event of extreme weather.

  • Riders must bring their own properly fitted ASTM-approved horseback riding helmet, riding boots, or boots with a heel.


EC RIDER LEVELS

New in 2024, SFR Equestrian will be offering those enrolled in lessons the opportunity to complete the Equestrian Canada Rider Level Programming to obtain their certifications in Rider Levels 1-6. This consists of an 8-week course with both theory and riding lessons, culminating in written, theory, and riding exams to receive a rider-level certificate.
